In part 1 of my Basic Elements And Strategies Of A Successful Search Engine Optimization Campaign post I covered the first four of the most important basic elements and strategies of a successful search engine optimization campaign: Keyword Research, Keyword Match, Metadata Page Title Creation and Implementation, and Metadata Meta description Creation and Implementation.
In this post I will cover more of the elements and procedures of the Basic Elements And Strategies Of A Successful Search Engine Optimization Campaign.
Why is identifying missing metadata page titles important? Creating and implementing metadata page titles is part of the on page search engine optimization process.
Metadata page titles are the key element to proper on page search engine optimization. It is considered the most important on page factor for obtaining ranking results in the search engine results pages.
Not having a metadata page title forces the search engines to create one for you. They may just post your site name in result snippets.
Metadata page titles define what is expected to be found on your web page.
Control your own destiny and identify where you have missing metadata page titles and get them in place today!
What are duplicate metadata page titles, and how do they happen? Identifying and correcting duplicate metadata page titles is part of the on page search engine optimization process.
- Every page on your site is unique. Every page title for proper search engine optimization must be unique as well. Duplicate metadata page titles cause confusion for the search engine algorithm’s ranking factors because the duplicate page titles indicate that you have seemingly duplicate pages.
- Duplicate metadata page titles can cause the search engines to drop one of the two or both pages because it cannot figure out which page is most important for ranking results.
Get going! Identify and correct your duplicate page titles now!
What is meant by <h1> tag usage? The proper use of <h1> tags is part of the On Page Optimization process. The following guidelines must be followed for proper <h1> tag usage:
- <h1> tags are a required element for proper search engine optimization.
- They need to contain the page’s keyword(s).
- <h1> tags need to appear first in the body content.
- They need to be used one time and only one time on the page.
- Do not tag images as <h1> tags
Now start creating your proper <h1> tags and implement them on page!
What are matching <h1> tags and metadata page titles? Why is this element important? Identifying matching <h1> tags and metadata page titles are also an on-page Optimization process.
Page Titles should never match the <h1> tag on the page. They can be similar, but not matching word for word.
Page titles are the most important element for indexing pages properly as this is one of the first elements that the search engines use for algorithm ranking results.
Duplicating your page title with your <h1> tag can appear spammy to a search engine’s algorithm.
Properly created, your ‘different’ <h1> tag can help further explain what your page is all about.
Now, go find those matching <h1> tags and metadata page titles and fix them!
Why are missing <h1> tags important? <h1> tags as noted previously are part of the On Page Optimization process and an important element for the search engines’ ranking factors.
Not having an <h1> tag on your page(s) can impede your search engine optimization campaign efforts.
Now, go find those missing <h1> tags and fix them!
What are multiple <h1> tags, and why is this element important? Identifying pages with multiple <h1> tags is an on-page search engine Optimization process. <h1> tags are an important element in the factors for ranking results in the search engine results pages.
Using more than one <h1> tag on a page can be confusing to the algorithm thus weakening your search engine optimization efforts.
Using more than one <h1> tag on a page may appear spammy to the algorithm which may jeopardize your search engine optimization efforts.
Now, go find and fix those multiple <h1> tags!
Why is identifying and implementing missing meta descriptions important? Identifying and correcting missing metadata meta descriptions are part of the on-page search engine optimization process.
Meta descriptions are important because they are used in your search snippet result in the search engine results pages. See image below:
If you are missing a meta description, the search engine will create one for you. However, it may or may not be applicable to the search query term used by a searcher, thus possibly undermining your probability of a click.
By creating your own custom, unique meta description that meets the search engine specification for character count and pixel count, you may be able to control your own snippet result in the search engine results pages.
Get going and control your search engine results snippets now!
